Driver who ran stop sign at St. George intersection gets arrested 

ST. GEORGE, UT – Officials arrested a driver of a white utility truck who ran a stop sign and struck another vehicle, who injured himself and three others, Tuesday. 

According to St. George News, the collision occurred before 6 p.m. at the South River Road and East Commerce Drive intersection. The force of the crash caused the two adults and a child from the other vehicle – a red Cadillac SRX4 – to be trapped. 

Medics extricated the three Cadillac occupants and sent them to St. George Regional Hospital. Officials did not specify the severity of injuries the adults from the Cadillac sustained. However, they did say that the child suffered a broken nose and a fractured orbital bone. 

Law enforcement identified the truck driver as 24-year-old Jose Alfredo Domniguez-Arellano. He had initially left the scene but returned approximately 20 minutes later complaining of a sore arm. 

Domniguez-Arellano had sustained a broken shoulder and it was confirmed that he was impaired, when first responders located numerous bottles of beer in his truck. In addition, officers discovered that he did in fact drink and never obtained a driver’s license in the United States. He was hospitalized and arrested. 

As indicated by the source, “Arellano faces two third-degree felony charges: failing to remain at the scene of an accident involving serious bodily injury and suspected DUI with a passenger under 16 years of age.” 

Arellano was booked into Purgatory Correctional Facility, and his bail is set at $5,000.

The conditions of the Cadillac occupants are unknown.
